This fantastic, Russian Santa Claus is hand carved and hand painted by the artist in creating this unbelievable work of art. On the front of Santa's cloak is a scene of The Famous Russian Kremlin. On his pack is painted the brightly colored St. Basil's Cathedral! Santa is also holding a brightly lit lantern while he is standing on the stump of a tree. This Santa (or Grandfather Frost as he is called in Russia) is lacquered so it is easily cleaned and protected. The solid linden wood is dried for almost 2 years before it is carved. Linden wood was once used to make drafting boards because it is so stable once properly dried. It does not warp, change shape, or crack and this artistic piece will bring enjoyment for a lifetime! (Note: These are not molded or mass produced as are some molded resin Santas from China. All Russian Santas are hand carved from Linden Wood and each one is a unique piece!) This Santa is made in Sergei Posad, Russia, is signed by the artist, and measures approximately 11.75 inches tall by 6.25 inches wide.
